  • History Talk: A Story of Maine in 112 Objects

    Bernard Fishman, the Maine State Museum’s director, has recently edited and published a book, A Story of Maine in 112 Objects, which tells the whole story of Maine through a choice selection of 112 objects in the museum’s collections. From a 400 million year old fossil, through the only authentic Viking object found in the United States, to a genuine 200-year old sawmill moved to the museum and rebuilt piece by piece inside it, he’ll tell the fascinating stories of how the museum acquired some of its most compelling objects, and what they have to tell us about the saga of Maine. You won’t want to miss these tales of how you create a museum and its contents, how these special objects got to the museum, and what they and the characters that made or used them have added to the richness of our state.
